New Dig Day Points Rule

Nothing quite like a rainy day to amend the Racer Handbook!

This year, we’re trying to line up multiple several Dig Days on different days of the week to give more racers the opportunity to earn points and give back to our local trails. We’ll be adding even more in the next few weeks.

It has become clear that someone who attends each Dig Day could easily rule the leader board, potentially without racing very much. In the past, there have been limits on Dig Day points for this reason, but it also doesn’t feel right to discourage Dig Day participation. Still, Mid Week MTB is a racing series, and points should be mainly accumulated by racing.

Therefore, we are implementing this new rule, reflected in the Racer Handbook as of today:

The maximum Dig Day points any racer can apply to any one discipline is 150.

  • All Dig Day points earned to date will be applied to Season Points.

  • You can earn up to 150 in XC and also up to 150 in Mini Enduro.

  • For each Dig Day you attend you receive an additional raffle ticket at the Season Finale Party

    • You already earn 1 raffle ticket per race attended + 1 per Dig Day, and will continue to earn raffle tickets even after you hit your 150—point limit.

  • We are working to stack the Season Finale prize selection, and will be announcing some of these prizes as early as June, so you can be stoked to dig, knowing you’re improving your chances of winning awesome stuff!
